Richard Cordray, a close ally of Senator Elizabeth Warren who served as the first director of the federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau during the Obama years, has been selected as the new head of federal student aid in the Biden administration, a post that will put him at the center of the swirling debate over forgiving student debt.

The issue is a tricky one for President Biden. Though he has endorsed canceling up to $10,000 per borrower through legislation, Mr. Biden has been pressured by some Democrats to forgive much more, and to sign an executive order making it happen if Congress fails to act.

I'm sure the "uneducated" will object. I say, if they graduated, pay off all debt.

A little hard to do at private universities.  The phrase "Go **** yourself" comes to mind.

Sure because at ALL COSTS we must protect the revunue streams of debt to the RICH no matter HOW much it hurts society to have such HIGH LEVELS OF DEBT so the new workers with good incomes STILL cant buy homes or new cars. but the RICH MUST BE SERVED

Ignorant Randinista MORONS always bow to the rich and demand we all beg for crumbs off their table after we give them EVERYTHING and NEVER do anything to hlep working people Simplemindes selfish PRICKS are all Randinistas are

The universities need to stop acting like they're essential.
They became businesses. Let them go bankrupt.

If you take out a loan, then be a man of honor.........and pay it back.
Don't ask your brother, the tax-payer, to pay it off for you.
That ain't right.      We are 28 trillion dollars in debt.    We just cannot
afford it.

That is the commitment they made and the trade off to potentially garner a higher salary. Personal responsibility and accountability seems to be losing its value.

true. They no longer provide a service worth the cost. 

People can educate themselves, if they are intelligent, far better than any university. 

And if you go to a university for money? 

Well...better not be white.

The only people who are getting a bailout and thus **** you over are the CEOs of multinationals and their cronies, Despite your strange notions that homeless bums are somehow really getting over on everybody and sticking it to the taxpayer.. how do you even sustain that idiotic fantasy?
